First Mag is doing local beer right. Their pilot batches are great so I recommend getting them when you see them! Lots of different styles for different tastes. If you’re in Gainesville or just swinging through you should definitely stop in!!

Easy to find. Lots of parking all around the entire building. Great vibe inside and outside. Lots of tables for seating and plenty of counter space to order. Friendly staff. Definitely worth a stop.
